California's universal mask mandate for indoor public places will end next week on February 16th.
State officials announced Monday the lifting of the indoor mask mandate will apply to counties without local mask orders of their own, such as San Diego, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties.
Masks will still be required in indoor public places for the unvaccinated and everyone in select settings, such as nursing homes or aboard public transit.
State officials also announced they're working to update school masking requirements. Currently, everyone on a K-12 campus must wear masks indoors.
